    My laptop is dying a slow death! Help me!

  2. Tom July 26, 2011 at 12:55 pm #

    Friday, the 29th is my birthday. As of today, I’m expecting no presents. :-( This would be a birthday miracle.

  3. Lili July 26, 2011 at 1:14 pm #

    Because it’d be awesome!

  4. julie July 26, 2011 at 1:15 pm #

    Because I would love to own one!

  5. Hope July 26, 2011 at 1:17 pm #

    I would love a Netbook! My laptop has lived with me nearly ten years but is not willing to work much longer, and I take great care of my electronics. PDX Pipeline is amazing!

  6. Tyson C. July 26, 2011 at 1:19 pm #

    Old laptop is slowly coming apart and will not connect to networks anymore. Winning a new one would fix this problem :)

  7. Matt Alex July 26, 2011 at 1:19 pm #

    I need a new netbook so I can tweet and share PDX Pipeline more! Plus my laptop is dying a slow death – not good for someone who spends all day everyday online!

  8. Kristin July 26, 2011 at 1:21 pm #

    I would like to win because I need a new laptop. Furthermore, to win one in honor of the Blazers would be my honor!! Viva la Rip City!!

    Yesterday I bought an Apple iPad off Craigslist. But later found out it was an Apple Newton.

  11. Doug July 26, 2011 at 1:23 pm #

    I have never used an app. I don’t know what I’m missing, right? Are these things really useful? I wanna find out. Help me Pipeline!

  12. karah defender July 26, 2011 at 1:26 pm #

    Pick me and I will stop pestering you.

  13. howard tang July 26, 2011 at 1:26 pm #

    why I want to win a netbook? because mine is broken and i m gonna need something to do when there’s no hoops this year!

  14. Tony July 26, 2011 at 1:27 pm #

    I like Intel

  15. Michael July 26, 2011 at 1:29 pm #

    I believe! Rip City!

  16. Jevon Simerly July 26, 2011 at 1:31 pm #

    Street jam is going to rock. See you there.

  17. heather July 26, 2011 at 1:32 pm #

    I want to give the netbook to my sweetie, because his laptop (which he bought about a year ago) has been broken for some time. He tried to fix it by using a USB keyboard and mouse, and that worked for a while, but defeats the purpose of having a laptop. He needs to be portable! This netbook would solve all his problems as neither of us can afford to replace his computer. Thanks!

  18. Steve July 26, 2011 at 1:36 pm #

    I would love to win so that I can spread the word of the awesomeness that is PDX!

  19. AJ July 26, 2011 at 1:40 pm #

    I would love to win so I could surprise my mom with it for her 70th b-day.

  20. Natalie July 26, 2011 at 1:58 pm #

    I would love to win this so I could bop around PDX and do all my work in exciting new places.

  21. Chris July 26, 2011 at 1:59 pm #

    I’d love to win because computers are awesome and I’d like a new one.

  22. Sarah July 26, 2011 at 2:12 pm #

    My friend Carri is in desperate need of a netbook. She just moved out of a communal house and in with an older woman, who has no internetz or computer. She really needs to get a job and the hour allotment at the library just isn’t cutting it. It would mean so much, to someone who’s never had a computer, so plz let me win so I can help a recently-relocated friend. Thanks!

  23. Janie Scott July 26, 2011 at 2:12 pm #

    Pick me please. My ‘puter is dying and I can’t afford another one.

  24. Emily July 26, 2011 at 2:21 pm #

    I would like a netbook because my boyfriend of 2 years just dumped me.

  25. Eric T. July 26, 2011 at 2:26 pm #

    Id like to win this cause I wouldnt be able to get one otherwise. I pay current and back child support and health insurance for my son and on top of that my ex has disappeared with him and I havnt seen him in months. Oh and the only internet I have is on my dumb phone.

  26. Phil Cherry July 26, 2011 at 2:51 pm #

    it would be a outstanding replacement to my current laptop that is missing the “A” & the ? mark key. Thank you for your consideration.

  27. ace July 26, 2011 at 3:19 pm #

    Because I’m Bi-winning and I drink TIGER BLOOD!

  28. Desiree July 26, 2011 at 3:30 pm #

    Winning a netbook would be amazing because mine died last week and I am currently posting this from a borrowed piece of crap…I mean generously loaned computer :)

  29. Jake Carpenter July 26, 2011 at 3:54 pm #

    Because checking game stats on the cell phone is maddening.

  30. Gigi July 26, 2011 at 4:13 pm #

    If I win, I will use my netbook to post cat pictures all day. Because the world needs more cat pictures.

  31. Phoenix July 26, 2011 at 10:56 pm #

    Me pleeze… ’cause I’d like to eventually win something!

  32. Benjamin July 27, 2011 at 12:25 am #

    Went to this last year when it was a hundred degrees and saw a white guy win the 3-pt tournament. These things are rare in Portland. Hook me up again please!

  33. Emily July 27, 2011 at 2:39 pm #

    I am strating grad school for social work in the fall at PSU and a brand spankin new netbook would be a great way for my broke ass to start school!

  34. Nancy July 28, 2011 at 10:47 am #

    Yes please.

  35. Vivian July 28, 2011 at 11:53 am #

    I’d love to win because a) I’ve never won through Pipeline before b) I’d love a new laptop – working for a nonprofit hasn’t given me much in terms of saving up for a new one!

  36. spencer July 28, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

    Rip city!

  37. Adam Thorsfeldt July 28, 2011 at 12:40 pm #

    My laptop was stolen.

  38. Roya July 28, 2011 at 1:27 pm #

    I would love to win! This would be HUGE for me! Please pick my long, lovely, exotic name!

  39. Mirium July 28, 2011 at 2:06 pm #

    Sounds very cool!

  40. Matt July 28, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    Because I love gadgets!

  41. Sarah July 28, 2011 at 3:51 pm #

    This would be super-cool to win! I promise I would only use it for good – and not to take over the world!!! Really.

  42. Darcy B July 28, 2011 at 3:55 pm #

    yes please–I’m tired of fighting my 3 teens for time on the laptop!

  43. derek July 28, 2011 at 3:59 pm #

    I would love to win the intel netbook so I can watch my nba leauge pass on the road while I’m traveling. Go blazers!

  44. Ally guest July 28, 2011 at 4:01 pm #

    I would like to win because I am a huge blazers fan and also a big fan of the Internet. I would totally cartwheel around the block if I won.

  45. Dam July 28, 2011 at 4:06 pm #

    Looks like a fun time on a beautiful summer weeekend in P-town. The netbook would be a sweet little cherry on top!

  46. carey July 28, 2011 at 4:07 pm #

    Pick me and I will give it to my boyfriend so he can get out of the house and surf the internet. I need some me time!

  47. hj July 28, 2011 at 4:08 pm #

    I want to enter so I can IM my friends while watching the Blazers BEAT their teams!

  48. zarvora July 28, 2011 at 4:14 pm #

    The Trailblazers won their only NBA championship on the same day that I graduated from high school. So, I’ve been waiting for a loooong time for a repeat, and it’s not only me that’s getting old – my laptop is too.

  49. Anna July 28, 2011 at 4:16 pm #

    I would really like to win a Netbook to bring me into the 21st Century. I’m one of the only people I know without a smart phone and this would at least help. Thanks!

  50. Fernando July 28, 2011 at 4:17 pm #

    Being unemployed for the past year, I need one to keep looking for a job. Plus I volunteer a ton so I don’t just sit at home all day.

  51. Katie July 28, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

    my computer doesn’t like the wine I spilled on it as much as I did

  52. Lorrie July 28, 2011 at 4:23 pm #

    Please…..Purdy Please. :-)

  53. Dawn July 28, 2011 at 4:24 pm #

    My spouse needs a new computer, and winning one would be awesome, but I like Katie’s response located just above this one.

  54. Vanessa July 28, 2011 at 4:40 pm #

    I have lived in Portland for 7 years and have been to 1 Blazers event… and had as many computers. Both of these things need to change.

  55. Amber July 28, 2011 at 4:44 pm #

    I want to win because I am doing this from my phone and would very much enjoy an actual laptop/netbook. It would help me out SO much!

  56. Daniel July 28, 2011 at 6:31 pm #

    I would love a netbook because it would help me play basketball better.

  57. Danielle July 28, 2011 at 6:33 pm #

    I’m a freelance transcriber for deaf high school students, and carrying a netbook through the halls would be a vast improvement [on my back] over schlepping around an 8-pound laptop from 2004. Thanks, Intel’s AppUp and PDX Pipeline!

  58. Ben Hamar July 28, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

    I’m arrogant and boorish and less deserving than anybody else commenting here but I will defenestrate my bad ways if my name gets drawn.

  59. Kimberly July 28, 2011 at 6:49 pm #

    I would love to win this notebook since my laptop died and I’m currently borrowing my friends until I can afford to buy one (which will be a while). Winning it would be awesome!

  60. Rob July 28, 2011 at 6:58 pm #

    Winning this notebook would be great! As a volunteer referee for the street jam for the fourth year running, this would be a nice perk :)

  61. Meghan July 28, 2011 at 8:11 pm #

    I never win anything so I don’t know why I bother, but here I go again. Hope springs eternal…!

  62. Glenn July 28, 2011 at 8:30 pm #

    Would so love to have this. I have never had a new computer, only old dinosaurs. This would be awesome.

  63. Laura July 28, 2011 at 8:38 pm #

    Would make commuting the best. And uhh I like the Trailblazers!

  64. Dave July 28, 2011 at 8:51 pm #

    I’m heading to Chile and Argentina in December and I’d love a netbook so I can keep in contact with my family and friends. A netbook would also be great so I can research places to visit, hostels, restaurants, etc., while I’m down there.

  65. Christine July 28, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    It would be so nice to have one.

  66. Dee July 28, 2011 at 10:40 pm #

    Would love to have a small laptop!

  67. Aarron Neace July 28, 2011 at 11:11 pm #

    I always wounded what it would be to have a notebook. I will likely head over there to check out the event, looks fun.

  68. April July 28, 2011 at 11:25 pm #

    love to win!

  69. Troy H July 28, 2011 at 11:54 pm #

    Netbook. Netbook, netbook, netbook. Netbook, netbook,netbook, netbook, netbook. Netbook, netbook, netbook, Netbook, netbook,netbook, netbook, netbook. netbook, netbook, netbook. Did I mention netbook. Netbook is good. Netbook is sane. Bow down to the ever lovin’ netbook. I would if I had one.

  70. thea July 29, 2011 at 1:01 am #

    NBA jams all summer long!

  71. yuri July 29, 2011 at 1:17 am #

    Go blazers! I love my team! A net-book would be awesome mine does not charge anymore =(

  72. Benjamin July 29, 2011 at 1:36 am #

    Yeah, carrying books is such a drag. Turning pages….waaayyyy too much work. My stubby fingers could benefit from a netbook.

  73. Shawn July 29, 2011 at 4:44 am #


  74. Shawn July 29, 2011 at 4:48 am #

    IN IT TO WIN IT! Thanks Pipeline! And my reason… my computer is broken! :)

  75. Danielle July 29, 2011 at 8:55 am #

    Because this would be the best EVER!!!!!

  76. Jen P July 29, 2011 at 8:58 am #

    Well, My daughter is moving away from home for the first time ever, I would LOVE to give her this so she can stay connected to me… it would so make me less sad :(>>>>

  77. Tim July 29, 2011 at 9:01 am #

    I would like to have one because it would fill a big, big, big hole in my life because I don’t have one yet. (insert snickering here) : )

  78. Viola rose July 29, 2011 at 9:23 am #

    this would make my year….

  79. anthony cibik July 29, 2011 at 9:25 am #

    this would such a help for school

  80. shobha grace July 29, 2011 at 9:25 am #

    gosh oh golly gee this would be a happy…

  81. Mitzi July 29, 2011 at 10:07 am #

    I cannot express how much my son needs this for his online studies.

  82. Alan July 29, 2011 at 10:15 am #

    My 10 year old daughter is entering 5th grade, and could REALLY use a netbook to help her to advance in her studies!

  83. Rain Madrone July 29, 2011 at 10:45 am #

    I love the Blazers, I put a ton of miles on my computer, and I could use a new one!

  84. Lana R July 29, 2011 at 11:04 am #

    A net-book has been on my wish list for at least 4 years. Though everytime I get close to saving up the money, another expense comes along! If I won one, I’d be on top of my game… a superb specimen of the species… a gal that can cut the mustard!

  85. Darcey Priss July 29, 2011 at 11:49 am #

    I would be overjoyed to win because I have never had a laptop. I’m disabled, and have had no income for the last year so I haven’t beena position to get one for myself. I would be able to research doctors, hospitals, an insurance plan, disability benefits, a caregiver, medications and of course it would be used for entertainment too! I could make friends and use online support groups. I could use it to help make major improvements in my health, financial status and relationships. Thank you for this opportunity.

  86. Fabian Dorgan July 29, 2011 at 11:57 am #

    I would love to win! I’d very appreciate the advanatge my first laptop would give me. I have spent most of my life and income taking care of my disabled daughter, as a single mother. I work in Corrections as a counselor. I believe I could be of better service to myself and the people I help, if I had a personal computer. It would give me a way to track my research, keep financial matters updated securely or access news & entertainment. I thank you for considering my entry.

  87. nicholas james patrick July 29, 2011 at 1:38 pm #

    two years ago i was visiting friends in austin and someone left a packet of border sauce on my laptop keyboard. about a month later, i started to notice that signature taco bell smell every time i turned the computer on. i took apart my computer piece by piece and cleaned off all the border sauce i could reach, but my hard drive and wireless port were welded directly to the motherboard, and coincidentally happen to be loaded with zesty border flavor. needless to say, i haven’t had a computer since then and would love to have one now.

  88. jimbobber July 29, 2011 at 3:22 pm #

    I would LOVE to win a netbook because I am broke and over-extended and I’ve been a very good boy!

  89. Madeleine July 29, 2011 at 3:27 pm #

    I’d like the netbook because I’ve lived off the grid for about five years. I’ve never texted or owned an i-phone, have no laptop since I gave my broken one away in 2007, have no cell phone, no cabe/t.v., on and on….the only reason I ever signed up for Facebook was because I heard employers want to see it for hiring purposes, and same goes for linked in, and I’m under a false name on one, and false pretenses on another… a netbook would bring me up to the present tense… what is it lol…’s a little laptop right?

  90. Jersam Madgitley July 30, 2011 at 12:49 pm #

    Reasons I NEED a netbook!
    1: you are giving one away
    2: apparently, i wont have to pay for it at all.
    3: maybe i would be more into the Blazers if i had one (or they started being awesome)
    4: More techno junk means more happiness! right?
    5: It will make me look so much cooler with a tiny little computer, like those japanese kids that are walking out of A&F downtown.
    6: I made a list! I MADE a freaking list!

  91. Diane Bassette August 3, 2011 at 1:30 pm #

    I’m tired of being tied to my desktop!!

  92. Daniel Yeager January 26, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    Blazers are number one!!!!! I would love a Netbook and also i see you give away tickets i would be just as happy take my boy to his first Blazer game!
